Sometimes it is a couple days after. Other times it can be right away. It sort of depends how it happened like if you were playing football and someone landed on your foot. That is an example of swelling and numbing. If you were to just fall, then that is an example of swelling and numbing after injury. It depends how hard you fell. If you fell quick and sturdy, it would numb and swell and that means you probably broke your toe(s) or your foot or feet. If someone landed on your foot then you probably just might have sprained it/strained it. Again, it depends on how hard you did it. If the swelling is right away and it is black, dark purple, and green, see a doctor as quick as you can. You probably broke it.
Ibuprofen is for pain or fever. It will not reduce the swelling much from an injury, as that is not an inflammatory process.
No,I wish it did, but it does not. Usually only 20 min. after injury.
you should see a doctor when there is any obvious bone deformity or misalignment of a joint; pain continuing for more than 10 days; an injury does not improve after 5-7 days; there is continued swelling or inflammation of a joint or injury; and if there is any indication of an infection such as fever, pus, red streaks visible in the tissue, or swelling of lymph glands. .
To reduce swelling. Ice will work up to the first 24 hours of injury and you should elevate the injured area above the heart for a few days.
You can expect swelling around the nose and eyes. This is normal and should peak at about 3 days. The bandages should come off in about a week and in 7 - 10 days the swelling should be down far enough that it will be unnoticed by the untrained eye.
There will also be some swelling and discharge after the surgery. The swelling is usually minor, and patients should be able to open their eyes within the next two days, as the swelling should gradually disappear.
After 10 days it should not feel tender, but if there is is no swelling or redness then it is likely painful because of the nerve damage
The numbing effect lasts from 2 to 4 hours. Rarely does it last more than that, although there have been cases where the numbing effect lasted for days.
When the are of the injury is inflamed, you should put ice. Follow the RICE method, REST, ICE, COMPRESS and ELEVATE. Once swelling has subsided (about 5 days), you can start to use heat to promote blood flow and improve healing.
Usually the swelling lasts for a few days.
The swelling usually subsides in two days.
